SMWConnect: Monthly newsletter for Woods alumnae/i
Dear Alumnae/i,

May is an incredible month to be a Woods alum! Many of us are hopping a plane to France, where we will see the Madrigals perform and tour Saint Mother Theodore Guerin's birthplace. Be sure to follow our travels on Facebook, Twitter and our blog!

We'll get back to the campus just in time to enjoy the 2012 SMWC Reunion here at The Woods.
